Brad Warbiany, one of my co-bloggers at The Liberty Papers, on why libertarian Republicans shouldn’t feel guilty about voting against John McCain, even if it does throw the election to Obama:
The Republican party doesn’t believe they need to satisfy the libertarian wing of their coalition. They’re taking us for granted, and ignoring us because they know we don’t want Obama to be elected. If they don’t feel they need to satisfy us, why should I feel sad if I make them feel the consequences of that belief?
Unlike Brad, I live in a state where enough votes for Bob Barr from pissed-off Republicans could theoretically throw the state to Obama.
And I’m still voting for Barr in the fall.
If McCain loses, it won’t be my fault, it will be the fault of a Republican “revolution” that was squandered and six years of Republican control of the White House and Congress that did little more than increase spending at a rate that would have made LBJ blush.
